SANDPIPER WATERFRONT COTTAGE
Spectacular views await you at this lovely southeast-facing property adjacent to Sandpiper Beach, and overlooking the Salish Sea (Georgia Straits). View includes the Coastal Range and Vancouver Island’s snow-capped peaks. Our sunny, one acre, level yard is ideal for sunbathing, reading, resting, playing croquet or badminton, bird watching, or simply enjoying the beautiful panoramas. Sunrises are gorgeous, and the tides recede to reveal beautiful sandstone rock formations and tide pools. Enjoy time with family and friends, or re-energize in the solitude, sun and lovely vistas. This unique spot is sure to revive the mind, body, and spirit. Steps from Sandpiper Beach; 10 minutes to Tribune Bay and Coop.
